SPLICING

Splicing Instructions

Rope splicing is a very strong method of fixing a loop eye or joining two ends together; as the rope is pulled tighter, the spliced strands become more and more squeezed and locked into place.

ROPE CONSTRUCTION


SOLID BRAID

A firm, round rope that works extremely well on blocks and pulleys.  Its name refers to the special lock-stitch construction of the rope.  Solid Braid rope does not unravel when cut, or accidentally broken, as much as other construction.  It is available in various synthetic and cotton fibers.


HOLLOW or MAYPOLE BRAID

This rope is constructed of 8,12, or 16 strands with a hollow center.  An outstanding characteristic of this construction is its ability to be spliced in just seconds.  It is available in various synthetic fibers.


DOUBLE BRAID

Also known as Braid-on-Braid, is actually two braided ropes combined into one rope.  A braided core is covered with a braided jacket to produce a strong, handsome, easy handling rope.  This rope is spliceable and, in most instances, stronger than twisted rope of the same material and diameter.  It is available in various synthetic fibers.


DIAMOND BRAID

Constructed with a tighter locking interlacing of yarns, normally using 8 or 16 strands.  This construction permits a core (inside) fibers to be used for the purpose of adding strength or a filler to produce a larger rope diameter.


TWISTED

Also known as Laid Rope.  Just about all laid rope is 3-strand construction.  It is spliceable and is available in virtually every type of rope fiber.  This is the most common rope construction for general purpose use.


PLAIT

A rope where four sets, of two strands each, are intertwined in a maypole fashion around the rope axis in a plain pattern, one over and one under.
